ABB 5k 2015 + consistency is your BFF

 go time!  i do believe this is the longest start line i’ve ever been in.

it took about 9 minutes just to get to the very front and start running! all that body heat kept us warm though.

 i left my house late (unsurprisingly) and with the street closures and all ended up parking pretty far.  i pretty much ran a dang 5k through downtown before the race started!  i don’t ever pay for parking downtown if i can avoid it; i’d rather walk and just save a few bucks.  i was tempted this time though cause i didn’t want to be late, but i made it, whew.

#atomicphotobomb & #selfiewhilerunning. the reason for that face is because i was contemplating that 24 min PR i set the night before!!!!

stats were posted tonight and my official time was 26:41!  i did set a PR of 24, but i’m thinking if i actually take the time to train correctly then maybe i’d actually hit it or come close smh! i love the challenge and i’m up for it.

done!  grateful to cross yet another finish line. i just can’t get enough of that feeling.

2015-01-17_09.02.081so Sonny has been in Nigeria all week long for work and was supposed to touch down in Houston at 5am this morning. however, his flight was canceled and he had to hop on the next available one.  i sure would have loved to see him at the finish line, but i did find two of my gorgeous Sorors there, Ayesha and Crystal.  they are both doing the full marathon tomorrow; run hard ladies and good luck!!.

after boot camp? a leg workout with my trainer, @showtimefitness of course!

 ‘what seems impossible today will one day become your warmup.’ yes. i remember running my very first 5k a few years ago and not moving or lifting a finger afterwards for like 3 days straight! i was crazy tired & super sore and could have easily said ‘screw running’and never did another race again. one of the hardest decisions we face in life is choosing whether to walk away or try harder. well, i chose the latter! how do you get better at something? DO IT MORE! no earthly idea how many 5 and 10ks (1 half mar) i’ve done since then but because i refused to quit, consistency had me up in the gym post-5k yesterday beasting through an intense full body workout with my trainer @showtimefitness. and you better believe there’s a full marathon on my to-do list! just keep going. don’t quit. consistency is key.

i actually love being trained as much as i love to instruct the trainings with my own clients!  Brian is awesome at what he does and i always learn more than a handful of things from him.

then… i headed to Luby’s for dinner to celebrate. i can ALWAYS count on a great, tasty, healthy meal from there.  i don’t care that the population is 80% senior-citizen per my husband!  i have so many childhood memories from Luby’s. it was a sunday, after church staple for my family growing up.  anyway i got the salmon, steamed cabbage, seasoned carrots, pickled beets & cucumbers, and……

  1. Congratulations on your 5K! I wish I could do something like that but I would come in dead last and would be wondering where all of the people went to when I got to the finish line.

    boo

    I have a treadmill but it would take me over an hour to get in 5 miles. Now that I see your score, it is motivating me to do better so thank you for posting this!!

    I am enjoying the pics of your boys. They are so darned cute and the one of your family, I love how your son is gazing at you! Precious!!!!!
